| p.1 #19 · Advice needed: 50mm L loose front element..solutions? |
Ah! I had assumed we were talking about the front glass element, so disregard my earlier post. This is an easy fix: Pull off the focusing rubber and you'll see the three screw holes for the front makeup ring. You can buy the part from Canon and replace it.
But if two of the three screw holes are still intact, you can remove the screws, put it back and unless you tug on the hood it will be perfectly serviceable. If two holes are stripped though, you'll either need to replace it or do some repair to the screw holes, as Kirivon demonstrated with his nice illustration.
Doesn't affect the optics at all, but it does affect mounting the hood.
I stand corrected, there is an easy fix! Wow. Had I realized the screws were behind the focusing rubber I'd have done the fix myself--I thought some more in-depth disassembly was required. Roger with awesome info as usual.
